    Re: Great White North Offense!!!!!!

    We must remember that Bill Walsh didn't invent the "WCO".
    I was actually started by a man named by Sid Gillman with the AFL Chargers in the 1960s and later by Don Coryell's St. Louis Cardinals and Chargers in the 1970s and 1980s.

    The Vikes team you are talking about is from the Mid 70's to say the mid 80's.

    Although they did run a version of the WCO it really wasn't invented by the Vikes my friend.
    Sorry.

    I thought this was going to be a proposal for adopting some wacky CFL offense. Alas!

    I HATE the fact that everyone calls it, the "West Coast Offense"!!!!!!!
    Does anyone remember the style that WE had back when Ricky Young led the league in receptions??
    Also, teamed with Ted Brown, who was also a gol 'darnit good pass catcher too!!
    Then, add the likes of a Joe Senser to the mix?? Then at WR, we had #85 Sammy White, and #28 Ahmad Rashad!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    The Minnesota Vikings run Brad Childress's Kick-Ass-Offense (KAO).

    Thanks to Josdin for the awesome sig!

    Actually they ran that offense right up to the point that Denny Green was hired after the 1991 season.
    That offense and this one are very similar as are the results.

    If you look back to 1993 even, I think you will find that the two teams will end up being very similar to each other where we have a strong Defense that scores alot of points and shuts teams down and an offense that is about mid pack but one that has trouble getting to the red zone and has troubles scoring touchdowns when it gets there. I pray to god that I end up being totally wrong on the last part and that the combination of AP and SR ends up being our red zone answer.
